Casting News - November 7, 2017

AMC's Dietland; Showtime's The Affair; and Syfy's The Magicians.

  • Emmy winner Julianna Margulies (The Good Wife, ER) is returned to television with a starring role in the upcoming drama created by Marti Noxon. Erin Darke (Good Girls Revolt) has also joined the cast today. Margulies will play Kitty, a wildly ambitious magazine editor whose world is thrown into chaos when a feminist terrorist organization starts targeting people in her orbit. Sucked into a terrifying news cycle, Kitty can no longer rely on her old-school media power and must instead play a whole new game of master manipulation where rules no longer apply. No details were immediately released about the character Darke will be playing.
  • Felicia Day (Supernatural, Eureka) has landed a recurring role on the drama's upcoming third season. She will play Poppy, a dragon expert who helps the gang in their time of need.
  • Russell Hornsby (Grimm), Tim Matheson (Hart of Dixie) and Dina Meyer (Kingdom) have booked recurring roles on the drama's upcoming fourth season. Hornsby will play Carl, Janelle's (Sanaa Lathan) ex-husband and Noah's (Dominic West) rival for her affection. He was a brilliant, promising student in his own day but his experience at an elite university demoralized him and turned him against the system his ex-wife thrived within. Matheson and Meyer will play a couple from Alison's (Ruth Wilson) past who have shocking information to share about who she is and where she comes from.
